"Wild is a wonderful word. Wild is raw and compelling. Wild is vivid and primal and complex. It is not only part of my name, it is symbolic of who I am. It describes my life and my experiences and it informs how I work and how I write." - Kim Wildman
Ever since she had her first travel story published at the age of 12 in the Brisbane Sunday Sun, Australian-born Kim Wildman dreamed of becoming a professional travel writer and photographer. Some 30 countries, 15 guidebooks and more than 150 feature articles on, Kim has not looked back today working as a freelance travel writer, guidebook author and wannabe National Geographic wildlife photographer for a variety of magazines, publishers and media outlets around the world.
When she's not continent-hopping, Kim runs travel writing workshops and retreats from her base in Bangalow on the Far North Coast of New South Wales in Australia. Recently voted one of Tripbase's 100 Favourite Travel Writers in the world, she also presents guest lectures on travel writing at universities and schools and speaks about her passion for the written road at international literary festivals and travel fairs.
